The UK should return Northern Ireland to the Republic of Ireland. I will argue against this and wait for my opponent to argue in the first round.

I accept this debate.
Debate Round No. 1

Con

First of all it was a democratic vote. Northern Irish citizens willingly voted to remain part of the UK. They should have a right to self-determination like in the Falklands. Second of all they are allowed a great deal of independence. They have their own governor and section of parliament and in sport citizens can choose to play for the republic of ireland if they wish. They can also freely pass into ireland without a passport check. It is more of a joint ownership than being owned wholly by uk. The six counties are actually a drain on uk's resources. if Ireland were to take these counties it would provide no real economic benefit and would show a poor message that the uk has given into terrorism.

I'm sorry, I had go somewhere and missed most of the debate. I ask the voters to please tie the debate as I did not get the chance to debate.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro fails to respond to Con's argument, and Pro, that is entirely your fault. Conduct to Con for Pro forfeiting first.
